Trainee Welcome Day – Start of our new trainees

The new training year started at the beginning of the month and we were once again able to welcome three new trainees in the area of IT for digital networking and system integration. This means that we now have a total of 10 apprentices in their 1st, 2nd and 3rd year.
As every year, the new training year began with our Trainee Welcome Day. Two of our three new trainees traveled from Karlsruhe especially for this and stayed in Aachen for the whole week to get to know the other departments and to be familiarized with the first topics. They will primarily complete their training at our location at Messe Karlsruhe. This year’s Welcome Day was planned and executed by HR, our trainers and our existing trainees. The overarching contact with all trainers and trainees, regardless of their training years and professions, is very important to us. In this way, our trainees in advanced apprenticeship years introduced the newcomers not only to our company history, customer divisions and product range, but also, in their own words and strengthened with personal experiences, to the various job profiles that are trained at m3connect. We wanted to make sure that our young talents, who are all taking their first steps in their professional life with us fresh from the school desk this year, know about the legalities of the training. To this end, we summarized the relevant laws and explained to the trainees in one sentence how m3connect implements them and to what extent we offer benefits in addition. Also the mutual expectations of the apprenticeship were discussed extensively. A tour of our company building, a slice of pizza and small talk with our CTO, who had previously met the trainees in a video interview, rounded off the day of getting to know each other. After many new impressions, we ended the Welcome Day with delicious drinks and great conversations in the old customs house next door.
Every year we invest a lot of time in onboarding so that our new trainees feel at home with us and can develop into experts in their specialist areas as quickly as possible. It is important to us to integrate them into the company by means of various measures and also to offer concrete development opportunities – and it pays off: In the past, the majority of our trainees have remained with us in the team after successfully completing their training. The training of junior staff is therefore an investment in our future that pays off and which we are constantly optimizing.

Once again, welcome Alessio Arandelovic, Adi Damadzic and Hanan Alrifaie. We look forward to accompanying and supporting you over the next three years. We offer you great career opportunities and the best chances for the future – in this sense: We wish you a great start at m3connect and much success for your training.
